Description:
Abstract:
A raster dataset depicting the probability distribution (0-100%) of the mountain longleaf forested ecosystem class (as of Hogland et al., 2005).
Purpose:
This dataset is one of a series of forested ecoystem probabiliy distributions that can be used to identify the location, the extent, and the amount of area for the mountain longleaf class.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Class probability validation was perfomed using an independant dataset and techniques described in Hogland et al., (2005). Error matrices can be estimated using all forested ecosystem class probabilities and a decision rule.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
Forested ecosystem types follow the definitions put forth in Hogland et al. (2005), which can be found at the following website <http://graduate.auburn.edu/auetd/>. This dataset was generated using multitemporal Landsat ETM+ imagery and DEMs. The grain size of this dataset is 30 meters. Model validation was performed using an independent dataset and can be found in Hogland et al. (2005).
Completeness_Report:
Probability distributions have been checked for mathematical consistency and have been checked for unclassified pixels. A stripe of no data (from west to east) was noticed in the southern portion of the study area accounting for 1 pixel in width (from north to south) across the study area (east to west). No attempts are being made to determine the class probability for these pixels.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
The source imagery was obtained from EROS Data Center (EDC) through the Multi-Resolution Land Characteristics (MRLC) program. EDC claims subpixel accuracy so maximum positional error is 30 meters. We performed no further georectification of the data.
